Boy Scout Troop 465 Hickory Flat, GA



2020 Recharter

Attention Parents and Scouts,

It's time for our annual recharter for the 2020 Scouting Year! Dues for Scouts will be $144 for the first Scout, and $132 for additional Scouts. Adult dues are $60 for the year. Our Troop will continue to do its best to ensure that all boys who want to participate can do so, regardless of ability to pay. If your Scout will need a scholarship please see the Troop Committee Chairman David Canale.

We will need from each Scout and adult the 2020 Recharter Information Form, a BSA Annual Health & Medical Record (health form) Parts A & B, and payment which you can make online if you wish at the Troop 465 Online Store.

Adult Leaders, you must complete the two documents below and turn them in with your recharter documents. National is updating their youth protection policies and is requiring all registered leaders to complete and turn these documents in to the Troop for the 2020 recharter.

The deadline to submit forms and pay dues is Monday, November 18, 2019. Please have it all in by then.

If you have any questions, or if your Scout needs a scholarship, then please contact me directly.

Thanks,

David Canale
Committee Chair

Troop 465 History Committee

 

The purpose of the Boy Scouts of America, incorporated on February 8, 1910, and chartered by Congress in 1916, is to:

Provide an educational program for boys and young adults to build character.

Train in the responsibilities of participating citizenship.

Develop personal fitness.

How you can get involved:

JOIN as a youth member with Troop 465.

VOLUNTEER as a Troop Committee member or Assistant Scoutmaster

GIVE to 465 Alumni Inc. to support Troop 465's sponsor.

  Serving youth for over 50 years, Troop 465 has had a proud heritage of molding boys into men according to the criteria listed above. Our Scoutmaster Emeritus, George Lingefelt, say's "If you want boys to become leaders, you have to train them and then let them lead", and thus began our "boy-lead troop" mind set. Jason Norred is our current Scoutmaster and passes these skills on. In fact, Scoutmaster Norred is only our 8th Scoutmaster since 1963.

Since 1996, the Troop Sponsor has been 465 Alumni, Inc., dba Friends of Troop 465, a non-profit organization specifically enacted to support Troop 465 both financially and philosophically. Troop 465 has a permanent Scout Hut, on over 3 acres, thanks to the generosity and foresight of 465 Alumni, Inc.

Troop 465 is unique because of the tremendous support from our members and their families. If you would like more information about joining troop 465, please click here.
